Gardening at the Library

In anticipation of summer, the Hudson library will be hosting two special gardening programs this month.

On Saturday, May 12 at 10:30, you can join us for a program about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). CSA has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from a local farmer. Megan Greeson from Sweet Top Farm will be leading a presentation and discussion about CSA, its history in our region, what it is, its importance and how you can participate. Her farm in Deer Park, Wisconsin grows more than 75 varieties of vegetables using sustainable, chemical-free practices and delivers to Hudson, North Hudson, River Falls, and Woodbury.

The library is also very fortunate to be hosting multi-award winning author Heather Holm on Saturday, May 26 at 10:30 for a program entitled “What You Can Do for Pollinators.” Roughly one third of the agricultural output in the U.S. is dependant on pollinators like butterflies, bees, bats and ants. Much of the food we eat and plants we enjoy are dependant on their work and industry. Holm will be sharing her insight and knowledge to help you grow a pollinator-friendly garden this summer. To find out more, check out her website.

Everyone is welcome and there’s no registration required for either of these programs.

Hope you can join us!
